Benton County Event Center & Fairgrounds

Event Center & Fairgrounds Master Plan

The Benton County Fairgrounds is an important gathering place and location for public events in the County for more than 100 years. The buildings, utilities and grounds at the fairgrounds have suffered from years of deferred maintenance. The master plan will include a facilities plan that identifies new construction and needed improvements to existing buildings, and a comprehensive business plan that explores management options and provides an operational and maintenance budget, plus potential funding mechanisms.

Fair & Rodeo

Benton County’s annual Fair and Rodeo features carnival rides, 4-H livestock, amazing performers, live music, and three nights of National Pro Rodeo Association-sanctioned rodeo. 

We hope you had a good time at the Fair this year, 22,195 people joined us! Local organizations from Kiwanis to Zonta raised money by providing needed services like Parking Lot Collectors and Gate Greeters. 4-H youth raised and sold their livestock, citizens sang and sewed, listened to local and national performers, ate good food and even some food that was good for you!

We're already planning for next year's Fair, July 29th - August 1st, 2020 and hope to see you then.
